Our football match prediction:
Valencia suffered an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Eibar in their last home fixture in La Liga, but they managed to hold Real Betis to a goalless draw at the weekend. Dani Parejo returned to the starting line-up from suspension and it is more than obvious that the Spanish midfielder is irreplaceable. Los Che aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the league, but Sunday’s football match against Athletic Bilbao will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Lions showed character in a come-from-behind win over Deportivo La Coruna, but it has to be noted that Aritz Aduriz scored the winning goal in the dying minutes of the match. Valencia aim to escape the danger zone in the La Liga standings and seeing that Athletic Bilbao are not regarded as good travelers, home win appears on the horizon.
